Genex Audio supplied a pair of GX9048 48-track and a single GX9000 8-track Multiformat Digital Systems to a new studio based in Montana, owned and operated by Brett Allen and his father. Scheduled to open in the spring of 2004, Lookout Studios will feature a main recording area equipped with a Solid State Logic XL9048 K Series analog console and online delivery systems for Internet streaming.
"We are a private facility that will experiment with modern production andstreaming of data transfer over the Internet," Brett Allen said. "The studio will be for our personal use, in addition to selected professional clients and nonprofit organizations. We envision archiving and recording sessions, and Webcasted house concerts."
Regarding his choice of recording hardware, 24-year-old Allen said, "The Genex systems are a key factor to the uniqueness of our studio. Our new SSL console offers an extended bandwidth performance and was designed with DSD in mind. And our network-based server will have the ability to provide simultaneous multiformat Webcasts."
Tom Paddock, CEO of the San Francisco-based Sonic Focus Inc., and DavidSchwind, VP of Charles Salter Associates, are handling acoustic and systemsdesign for the new facility.
